CIO Assembly

Atlanta, GA

The Transformational CIO

In today’s digital landscape, the role of the CIO has become the most dynamic amongst their peers. CIOs are focused on finding the most transformative technologies that enable them to bring value to their enterprise and customers.

Adopting an enterprise wide transformation strategy is driven by fundamental shifts in internal and external forces that impact the business and how it operates. Disruptive technologies are being introduced to the market faster than ever and executives must have the ability to align and address the enterprise-wide transformation challenges. These changes will ultimately influence strategic planning, business operations and the overall trajectory of the operating model moving forward. With unceasing demands, technology has become more complex and solution providers more difficult to decipher.

On June 6th, 2019 in Atlanta, GA Apex Assembly unites visionary leaders, entrepreneurs and industry experts to address trending topics in the information technology space. Through our partnerships, we are redefining the peer to peer landscape and illuminating the tools to help our members adapt, and together shape the dialogue to move the industry forward.

Through engaging with our executive community to the executive community, we have discovered key industry challenges and trends. These topics form the foundation of the Assembly and will be addressed through introductions, roundtables and workshops.
